Two brothers set out to write the world’s first musical in this hilarious mash-up of 16th century Shakespeare and 21st century Broadway!
About this Event

Welcome to the Renaissance! Meet Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a play that will finally knock everyone's favorite writer, William Shakespeare, off his pedestal. Nick consults a questionable soothsayer, Thomas Nostradamus, to try to steal the greatest play Shakespeare ever wrote (before he even writes it) and after glimpsing into the future, the two learn about a new type of show that will take the world by storm - the MUSICAL. The brothers work together to write the first musical, securing financial support by nefarious means, barely avoiding Puritanical persecution, and somehow making time for love in their lives. Something Rotten is the intersection where THE Bard meets Musical Theatre. Featuring Shakespeare's best lines and Musical Theatre's best show-stopping dance numbers, this show will have audiences rolling in the aisle!
